First of all, I’m sorry that I couldn’t answer your question quickly.

Your dog’s not-eating may be illness (enteritis, stomach ulcers, pancreatitis, addiction, etc.), pain, stress, or simple complaints. Also, she may not be able to eat it because her mouth hurts, such as periodontal inflammation and alveolar abscess. Give her delicious snacks. If she doesn’t eat snacks, there is a possibility of illness or disease.
If her loss of appetite is the result of an illness, your veterinarian may recommend a prescription diet to meet her nutritional needs while the underlying disease is treated. These diets aren’t always particularly tasty, especially if she is used to regular treats or human food.
In more severe cases, your veterinarian may prescribe appetite stimulants, suggest syringe-feeding a liquid diet, or insert a feeding tube.
These are simple home remedies, but not solutions.
- Provide her diet with soft, non-hard foods.
- Serve warm food.
- Change the room’s environment, the dining area, the time and frequency of meals, and so on.
Persistent and severe vomiting after fasting has a poor prognosis. In this case, it is best to visit a veterinarian.

Please let me know if your pet has any new symptoms or other questions. I apologize once more for the delayed response.
